This place is fantastic for tacos and fajitas.Although the price has doubled in about 6 years,we have eaten there about 50-60 times.They have super thin flour tortillas(I call them American-food tortillas because I have never found them in over a dozen Latin countries,including Mexico,where i've been almost everywhere)that are good for people with blood sugar problems.We ALWAYS eat corn,which is...

Loved the refried beans. Loved the Caldo. Loved the Rice. Parking is a little tough if they are busy.

Iam a big foodie I like to give everyone an opportunity but this restaurant is way over priced for what u get. Tacos are 3.89 each soft drinks 2.49 which is more than good sit down restaurants. Food is bad except the fajitas which are just ok. There are way better choices here and a whole lot cheaper.

Fast food experience, not for dress up. Always full of families with lots of kids. The attached playground gets lots of use. Food is excellent, well seasoned and authentic Tex-Mex. however, the place could use a good steam cleaning. Menu is a little confusing but the more you go the more sense it makes. Staff could be a little friendlier.
